Good Mix of Local and National Issues
Marty is so easy to listen to, a great interviewer that doesn’t ever annoy me and doesn’t resort to leading questions as much as many. I love today’s episode on the Philly accent, which brought back memories from my 4 years in Philly long ago. Great topic arising creatively out of a limited TV series very popular right now.
Perfect in Philly, Excellent Elsewhere
Covers current book releases and news routinely featuring top scholars from Penn as well as national journalists and popular authors and celebrities. Think of it as a sibling show to Fresh Air that is less personal and more newsy, often featuring multiple guests per hour on one topic. If you're not living in the region just ignore the local politics episodes.
Not balance - most guests are anti-Trump
When a guest does not criticize Trump, she would ask / provide hints that President Trump should be jeered at.
